Capital Wind Farm

The 140 megawatt Capital Wind Farm is located in New South Wales, around 30 kilometres north east of Canberra, just southeast of Lake George and north of Bungendore. The wind farm was completed in 2009 and cost around $220 million.[1]

The Wind Farm was built as part of the Kurnell Desalination Plant project to offset the power usage of the desalination plant:

"The wind farm has been designed to produce more than enough energy to operate the desalination plant to cover the days when there is less wind. It will increase the supply of wind energy in NSW by over 700%. It is a massive boost to the renewable energy sector and an environmentally sensible way to offset the power needs of the desalination plant." [1]
